    Dead Memories

    I would rate this novel a solid 4-1/2 stars! You would think after 10 books that the format would get stale ...but no, Ms. Marsons's Kim Stone and company seems to get better and better! Each book seems to peel back one more layer of Kim Stone that we had not heard about in other books! In future books, I do hope Kim finds some well earned peace and maybe someone to share it with (hint, hint!!) I do agree with fellow reviewers ...it is best to read the books from start to finish ...there is just a bit more clarity in reading it in proper order! Anything from this author is gold and if you love this genre, you won't be disappointed

    A Fantastic Thriller!

    I seem to be the only person who has never read a book from the DI Kim Stone Series or any other novel by Angela Marsons. Well, where have been all this time? I have read one now! “Dead Memories” (in case anyone, like me, didn’t know) is the latest Kim Stone story by Angela Marsons. “Dead Memories” is fine as a stand-alone book, but it does appear that, by not reading the other nine novels in the series, I have missed out on a lot of back-stories from previous books. Of course, I now plan to read the first book of the series, “Silent Scream,” followed by the rest of them. This tenth novel in the DI Kim Stone series is set in the Midlands. In Chaucer House, two teenagers are found chained to a radiator. The boy is dead but the girl is still alive. Every detail of the scene mirrors DI Kim Stone’s terrifying experience with her brother, Mikey when they lived in the same tower block thirty years ago. When more bodies are discovered in a burnt-out car, Kim can’t ignore the chilling similarity to the deaths of Erica and Keith – the only loving parents Kim had ever known. Can Kim solve this complex case and save her own life or will she become the final victim? I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Dead Memories.” I thought the premise was fascinating and I loved Angela Marsons’ writing style. This great, fast-paced thriller held my attention throughout and I had no idea as to the identity of the perpetrator. “Dead Memories” is a superb read which I have no hesitation in recommending. {Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for a free copy and for giving me the opportunity to provide an honest review.}

    as always...amazing novel in this series The backgrojnd into Kim Stone's life is heartbreaking but I love the way the characters come together. Still miss Dawson but warming up to Penn.

    Absolutely outstanding!

    Mamma mia. This was my first thought as I slowly put down the book. Mamma mia. Angela Marsons has killed me and brought me back to life. Again. You’d think that after ten books, the momentum would be gone. How long can a series last and keep catching your breath every time you read the first line? I don’t have the answer but I know Angela Marsons knows the secret to longevity! Ten books, ten opportunities for readers to create bonds with characters, to play detective, to witness gruesome crimes. Ten books to fall in love, loathe, hurt, cry, smile, chuckle. Ten books to be in awe of the author’s strong and emotional narrative. Always powerful, never disappointing. Ten books mean this review will be kept on the short side, as I refuse to spoil anything for newcomers or readers who haven’t read all novels yet (WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU WAITING FOR?) Dead Memories might be the tenth novel in the Kim Stone series, but it holds a very special place. It is a turning point, a breathtaking and painful path which had been left uncharted, only hinted at, until now. Try pick up a knife, plunge it in Kim Stone’s heart and mind, and twist it (No, don’t try it! Angela Marsons did it for you!!!). The result? I felt closer to Kim that ever before. Resilient and hard-boiled Kim Stone finds herself at the heart of the investigation. Not because she runs it, but because it is personal. More personal than ever before. Someone is hunting her, haunting her with her own past, recreating the horrors she went through. Can you imagine the drive it would take to do such a thing? Coming from nowhere, that threat had me boiling with rage. How dare they, whoever they are, do this??? I have grown so fond of Kim that I immediately wanted to protect her, even though she’s not the kind to seek protection… And that is a problem when someone is out to get you! We get right away into the heart of the matter, with a crime scene that brings memories, feeling Kim’s reluctance, or expectancy to be wrong, to see signs where there is nothing. As usual, Angela Marsons put words on a rollercoaster of emotions running through her protagonist’ veins. She’s so spot-on that the worry, the pain, the memories themselves come alive in front of your eyes, leaving you shivering, dreading the next crime scene, and wondering what kind of evil mind can be behind this deadly game. If this case hits too close to home, the author never forgets the wonderful team surrounding Kim, enabling them to grow along, to play their part, and to build an even more vivid picture of the nightmare they are living. Bryant and Kim’s relationship is gold, and I saw myself waiting for each of their interactions. Woody is a boss I’d like to have! Stace, Penn… I feel like if I pick up my phone right now, I’ll find their numbers! That’s how much I got used to them, that’s how real they feel, and that’s one of the things that make this series so addictive. Angela Marsons left me spinning. I want to keep on spinning. I think I will. Dead Memories is pacey and awfully authentic crime-wise without ever being too much, as the author owns the right skills to give you the pictures you need with the finest details, bringing scenes to life with the smell of death but at the same time holding your hand so you don’t fall into the darkness. Dead Memories is painful but Angela Marsons chases away the cold with the warmth of the care of a close-knit team who seems unstoppable. Dead Memories opens cracks in walls that should have been left alone, leaving everything raw on the way. In a nutshell, you MUST read Dead Memories, an enthralling page-turner!
